This week's Photo Hunt theme is 'haven'.
A haven is a place of safety or refuge. It can also be a small inlet/harbour.
This picture is a small haven we saw while we drove along the Amalfi coast . . .
While we were in Rome we visited a different type of haven.
The Torre Argentina cat rescue. Roman cats have always found shelter amongst the ancient ruins in our city. The numerous postcards here of cats sitting on stumps of old Roman columns, cat napping on the foot of an emperor's statue, or just lounging near the Colosseum testify to the deep rooted image cats have in our city. At Torre Argentina there are close to 250 cats sheltered amongst the oldest temples in Rome (400-300 BC). Seven days a week volunteers from different countries, feed, clean and look after them.
